Who Won the 2022 World Cup? | The GOAT Debate Finally Ends
Messi! It is technically Argentina (but you get the gist). Argentina won the world cup of 2022 after a total of 64 games.
This world cup has been nothing short of amazing. It was intriguing from start to finish. There were so many surprises, and it was a real competition.
The first Argentina game in the world cup 2022 had everyone on the edge of their seats after they lost to Saudi Arabia. The match ended with a goal score of 2:1. 2 being for Saudi Arabia and 1 for Argentina. At the end of the match, we all had one question “can Messi win the 2022 World cup?”. (Well, as we now know, he did, and as a Messi fan, I couldn’t be more proud). This is the moment we have all been waiting for, and to keep it short and simple, ” Messi is the GOAT.”
After Portugal lost to Morocco and didn’t make it to the semifinals, Ronaldo’s fans were devastated. The hopes were up for the African Nations as we all began to look at the possibility of the cup returning to Africa. However, this hope was lost after the game with France. Morocco lost in the game, making France qualify for the finals.
Argentina also displaced Croatia and won with a scoreline of 3:0 in the semifinals, making them qualify for the finals.
This is where it gets interesting. In the 1990 World Cup, Argentina qualified for the finals but then lost to west Germany. Also, In 2014, the last time Argentina qualified for finals, they lost to Germany. Will this be any different?
